Subject: Terrapin!
Terrapin is very beautifully done here. I happened to have been looking for a version to "take me there" and this one was especially nice, 29 years ago today.

The sound quality is pretty good once you sink in.

Subject: Nice Recording
I was at this show, and it was the highlight of my musical life. It's great to get a copy of the show after all of these years.

All of these shows from sept-oct 1980 are stellar. Good set lists good music and lots of highlights. Download all of them and see for yourself.

Subject: Some Moments Here
I like the dynamics in Althea, some real quiet moments. Then a very nice MNS to end the first set. Fanning from both Bob and Jer.

Great setlist, but all in all much like alot from this run - not a lot of facemelting performances. Solid nonetheless and if your into this SF>NYC Dead Set/Reckoning run this show is well worth the DL.

It is a fine sounding aud. to boot. RCMH has great acoustics as these posted aud's are proving. Super vocal captures.

Subject: G.D. at the office
I'm thoroughly enjoying this show at the office. The audience gets quite loud at times, but I'm dealing with it.
What ever happened to gdlive.com ? I used to log onto that site quite a bit. It's been down for ages !

Peace,
